1. THE COMPLIANCE PROGRAM
Monnos has an effective Money Laundering and Illicit and Terrorist Financing Prevention Policy (PLDFIT). Monnos’s activities are guided by the content of its PLDFIT Policy, which is always evolving and in line with the characteristics of its market, as well as by legal, normative and ethical imperatives applicable to its activity. In this way, Monnos assures its customers and regulators and other market members the smoothness of its operations.
The PLDFIT Policy is structured to combat the commission of illicit acts, divided into different components that converge for this purpose. Like other entities in the financial system, Monnos values the identification of its clients – which must be kept up to date – in line with recommendations from the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) and Bank for International Settlement (BIS). Indeed, people identified as politically exposed will be treated differently by the Monnos team.
Another pillar of the PLDFIT Policy is the registration and identification of transactions. In a market where transactions take place at significant amounts and speed, the potential for illegal practices cannot be ignored. In this way, Monnos keeps an eye on the financial movements carried out under its supervision – be they between crypto, be it between crypto and fiduciary currencies – always willing to collaborate with competent authorities in case of suspected violation of the law. It is also emphasized that Monnos does not receive cash, thus ensuring transparency and documentation of transactions.
Of equal importance is the preparation of the team. In addition to those directly involved with the compliance industry, everyone must be aware of evidence of wrongdoing and willing to identify and report such behavior to the appropriate industry. The compliance culture is reinforced by everyone on the Monnos team; from its CEO to the newest employee, everyone understands the relevance of the PLDFIT Policy.
Also in this field, the transactions to be carried out at Monnos will respect limits corresponding to the degree of customer documentation. That is: to move higher amounts, Monnos customers must undergo more scrutiny and may have their limit expansion request denied. New documents can be ordered at any time, and collaboration with demands is essential.
These grounds set forth in no way end Monnos’ PLDFIT Policy; Only here is Monnos’ degree of commitment to compliance with the law and appreciation of good faith and transparency.
2. RISK OF THE CRYPTACTIVE MARKET
Cryptoactive are not fiat money. This means that they are not regulated by any central bank or other government entity and, depending on their characteristics, may not have any intrinsic value. The risk of financial loss is a factor to be considered during any operation.
3. RULES APPLICABLE
The legal rules governing the crypto market are still scarce. However, Monnos remains in harmony with legal regulations regulating the traditional financial market. Seeking to mitigate the risks of wrongdoing – financial or otherwise – Monnos has developed its PLDFIT program by following recommendations and laws from different agencies and jurisdictions.
It is noteworthy that Monnos is not a traditional financial institution, which is why, in principle, the rules for companies in this segment are not fully applicable to Monnos. However, understanding that fighting illicit acts is a common goal of all, Monnos is constantly seeking and implementing the dictates that best serve this purpose.
